  1. If you are using the stock solid non-vented rotor, it looks to be the correct caliper.  If you are going with new vented rotors, you need the "W" version of the toyota calipers.  W = wide.

    You just need to finesse the hard line to the new calipers brake line location.  Make sure the bleeders are at the top when mounted.  One caliper is left, the other right.

  2. Is the Y pipe at the top of your picture a piece that came with and is part of your non Zstory headers?   I don't see the v band flange, so it must be.

    I assumed you received that piece from Zstory as part of the exhaust line shipment, but if not, looks like it only comes with the headers.   This is why I suggested 2 of the increasers to go one Y end at the headers...

    Even after I finish my Z and make the interior look like it wasn’t parked on Venus for a decade my wife will probably never want to ride in it.
    1. Too Loud
    2. Too Bumpy
    3. No XM radio
    4. No heated seats
    5. Too many rattles
    6. Embarrassed to be seen by others
    7. Smells funny
    8. No cup holders
    9. “Is that gas I smell”
    10. No airbags...”Is this safe”

    You can fix 4 & 5 when you redo the interior and seats.   #6, have her wear dark sunglasses.  #8, a console armrest with cupholders.  And 7 & 9, only offer her a ride when she is getting over a cold.    The rest, you're on your own ...

  4. FYI, I installed a Fidenza flywheel a few months ago and had the same issue with the dowel pins.  One of the 3 fit properly, the two others were .002 bigger, the length was correct.  Had to machine the dowels to fit the flywheel pin holes.   The flywheel holes were correct, the pins were the problem.

    I had the car at an area car show yesterday and a couple of guys came up and started talking with me. They said they worked locally at a Nissan facility but were actually headquartered out of Franklin. During our discussion of the new Z35 they mentioned that the first 240 cars will have a special limited edition interior treatment. No details available. Grist for the rumor mill!

    They were talking about the "Proto Spec" edition of only 240 cars.  Likely only available only in the lkuzachi yellow of the prototype and with features and interior treatment not available in the sport & performance trims.

  6. Very nice car and welcome!   If your picture is fairly accurate, it looks it has had a respray at some time with a color change to red.  Cliff's picture is close, hard to take a good pic in direct sun, best to do a dusk with the softer light.

    Take a look under the carpet in the hatch area and see if you can see the persimmon color...

  7. Thank you!    A quick rough measurement shows about 2 1/2 inches of clearance to the frame rail.  I originally tried to clock the compressor fillings 90 degrees  toward the frame rail, but the bigger discharge fitting was just too close to the rail for comfort.

    In other A/C related news, I recently completed about 1700 miles of driving to Zcon & back with the A/C system running and it performed flawlessly.  Very happy about that, and even with the A/C running some of the trip, I managed around 29 mpg on the fuel.

    (Had to drive behind Zup's silver 240 some of the time so he wouldn't see my sweater & gloves on.)  :ph34r:

  8. To verify the new alternator is not charging the battery,  measure the voltage across the battery with the ignition off, then measure the alternator output terminal with the car running, maybe 1000 rpm.   If they measure the same, the alternator is not providing a charge and the problem is likely a bad rebuilt / new alternator or as SteveJ has mentioned, the external regulator.  If the alternator is working, you should see somewhere near 14v on the second measurement.
